not have the divisions we are facing in syria. i so far there are issues that they are facing but i think we should have hope and faith and i think with the political settlement this should provide a ground for hope in the future. thank you. >> thank you. greg. >> i would like to echo dan in thanking you all for coming out on this very dreary day especially after a holiday for i'm sure many of you. and thanks to you as well for staying up a little late and giving us his great insight. as all of us know, the united states has just been through a presidential election. president barack obama was reelected. and the obama administration had a number of i think foreign policy and counter terrorism successes during the first administration obviously osama bin laden was killed in the special operations raid. president obama has overseen the drawdown of troops in iraq as well as in afghanistan. and yet i think one of the most lasting legacies from the first term of the obama administration may well be what u.s. officials term the yemen model. this is sort of how it is that the u.s. is going to fi
, syria, the islamic republic of iran and the united states of america. well, harold coe says, what a disgrace. how can the united states be a world leader on women's rights and not sign this treaty? well, let's take a look. what would radification mean? we don't have to guess what ratification means. the american bar association has written a book-length report, 200 pages, explaining exactly what american compliance would mean. the aba report is based on the work of the u.n. monitoring committees. they go to the countries when they ratify the treaty. so when they went to britain or australia or canada, they wrote a report. what were they telling these countries to do, how would you follow the treaty? well, the aba report opposes thousands of questions, all of them potential lawsuits. the aba claims, first of all, it's not about equality under the law, it's about de facto equality; that is, equality of result, statistical equality. the aba states gender quotas are not voluntary, it creates an obligation for a quota system. so i'm just going to run through a few of these questions fr
into the occasion. >> right now iran has its hands full. it's got syria collapsing on one side t has hamas in trouble. so at a very simple, logistical level, this is more demands on iran for resupplying of weapons for political support of various kinds, but there is a broad idealogical game here where iran wins, because iran is seen as the great defender of the palestinians in the middle east these days. this is fas tid arritidiously s. in the political sense, iran is seen as one of the champions of the palestinians. >> will they still be seen as a champion if israel goes debacle and pushes hard against hamas or do they risk losing some of that cache? >> not really. i think everyone understands that israel is one of the most powerful in the middle east by far. it will do what it has to to run gaza. they say to the people of the arab world, we know you're supposed to fear us because we're the shia and you're sunnis and you're arab, but we are the greatest defender of the arab cause, which is the palestinian cause. and it works. go to cairo, to the shops of cairo, and you will see photograph
in syria. but you can be sure that the israeli defense forces are watching that northern border very, very closely right now. >> harris: jonathan hunt, thank you very much. in addition to rockets, israel and hamas are also battling each other on-line. the israeli defense force has consistently and constantly updated its official twitter account since this conflict began. one tweet reads, quote, we recommend that hamas operatives whether low level or senior level, show their faces above ground in days ahead. the militant wing of hamas responding with its own tweet. quote, our blessed hands will reach your leaders and soldiers wherever they are. you opened hell gates on yourselves, end quote. and all of this is going on despite twitter's policy against direct specific threats of violence. >>> you've been hearing about it. economic crisis just a few weeks away potentially if lawmakers don't do something about it. president obama meeting with congressional leaders from both political parties to try to get them back from the brink. if they can't reach a deal by new year's day, tax also go up, d
. muslim brotherhood's in charge. we see what happened in libya. we don't know what will unfold in syria, on top of that is correct i would argue that jordan has been weakened as well. and they are probably ripe for takeover am we see the influence of iran all throughout the region. am i correct? would this be an accurate description isn't rise of the radical islamists? >> i think you are absolutely correct. i would call it not the arab spring, i would call at this time arab winter. look at what is happening now. being sent into israel for from iran. they are shipped into the peninsula and into gaza and using it against israel. so iran is the co-evil in the region. we see what they are doing in the south, in lebanon and we would have to do with -- to deal with them eventually. now we are dealing with hamas. but the main source of evil is coming from iran. >> sean: where is president obama? >> well, last night, president obam spoke with prime minister netanyahu. he said that the -- [inaudible] -- but it is too early to call. let's wait. now it's easy because we are targeting the military
of rocket attacks am now we see the return because iran and its ally, syria, have played a re-armament role, in terms of tens of thousands of rockets delivered into gaza that we now see the result of. so we have a real challenge in the middle-east, for sure. israel is our best ally and stands on the front lines. we have to stand tall. we have to, in the house of representatives and the senate we passed last night, a resolution and this morgue, a rez institution -- liewtionz, stabbing by israel and its right of self-defense. no question about it, times are tough. but we can and should stand tall. >> greta: nice to see you, thank you. >> greta: straight ahead, it is escalating, israel is moving closer to a ground war in gaza. israeli tach tanks, lining up at the border as hamas takes aim at jerusalem. dawn is about to break, as fear of a new launch of attacks. an illinois doctor and political candidate shreds obamacare to bits in a speech that went viral. but now the doctor says her fight against obamacare has cost her -- big time. she is here to tell you all about it. plus, there is big news
and there was not a lot of rocket attacks now we see the return because iran and its ally syria, have played a re-armament role in terms of tens of thens of rockets delivered into gaza that we now see the result of. so we have a real challenge in the middle-east for sure. israel is our best ally and stands on the front lines. we have got to stand tall. we have to in the house of representatives and the senate, we passed last night, a resolution, and this morning, a resolution, standing by israel and its right of it self-defense. no question about it. times are tough. but we can and should stand tall. >> nice to see you. >> thank you, greta. >> straight ahead, israel is moving closer to a ground war in gaza. israeli tark tanks, lining up at the border, after hamas takes aim at jerusalem. dawn is about to break, bringing fears of new rocket attacks. a live report from israel is next. also, who could forget this? an illinois doctor and political candidate shreds obamacare to bits in a speech that went viral. but now she says her fight against obamacare has cost her -- big time. she is here to tell y
, but this all relates to the big picture. and you've been to syria and it's an absolute basket case. >> and it is heartbreaking. you see these middle class -- i talked to one woman who a week ago was living this middle class existence with her husband and a nice home in aleppo and a bomb destroys her house and now her husband goes missing and she's living with her family in a white tent in the middle of nowhere. this is happening day in and day out and i think the turmoil in gaza is a gift of president assad. it's a kind of distraction that he's delighted to have. >> the world in the arab community is paying more attention to 30 people being killed in gaza than 30,000 people being killed muslim on muslim and arab on arab and that's disproportionate. >> the arab spring fallout, what is your take on that? >> i think i would like to go back to allen's point which is exactly right. as you and i talked about three nights ago, egypt could be the clear player in this. morsi's been in power now for four and a half months and it would be very important to watch, is he going to be a brag matt
stadiums, no mas. >> paul: they briefly, is the u.s. going to intervene in syria? >> no sign of it yet, but before the election didn't want to touch it, but-- >> that's it for this edition of the journal editorial report. thanks to my panel and all of you for watching. i'm paul gigot, see you right here next week. ♪ >> on fox news watch, i hear you have some questions for me. >> president obama on his first post election news conference taking on tough issues and tough questions from the white house press. >> congratulations, by the way, i've never seen you lose. >> well, maybe not such tough questions, but i did get testy when asked about the white house spin and the benghazi terror attack. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> the president of the united states did not tell the american people the truth about the attacks that took four grave americans' lives that went on for eight, seven hours for which we were totally unprepared. >> how did the media handle this showdown? a new scandal involving now former cia di
chief was killed in a bombing. and over next to it, east in syria we have that war that has been going on since march of last year. and according to the latest estimates from the opposition, nearly 40,000 people killed in that conflict. so you have the concerns, don, what is going on between israel and gaza could create even more instability in the region. something absolutely nobody in the world would want to see. >> thank you, josh, we appreciate it. >>> isramore troops along the israel-gaza border. we'll take you there next. >>> if you needed anymore evidence that israelis and palestinians is closer to war in gaza, there is word that israel is sending 30,000 troops to the border. >> reporter: we're in an area very close to gaza, only about three kilometers away from the strip of gaza, this is basically a unit that is keeping an eye on the gaza strip. now, as you can see, the guys have set up very close to a line of trees. and one of the reasons for that, they fear they can take fire from gaza, keep in mind in the past several days several targets in the gaza strip have been hit by r
's going on currently in syria, for example, i am i reminded in a really worrisome way of what happened almost two decades ago in boss bosnia. are we capable of learning for those type of experiences? are we allowing a situation to deter youruate further and further a religion bore that will create more and more hatred and inability of the country to come together again? i am worried that we are not capable. we seem to be not capable at this moment to use the kind of zip sei -- diplomacy i think would be highly desirable top find buy to bring russia to work out a deal with us to find solution to go forward instead of saying no, no, no, and no again. so i think -- i just want to make the point that paula also made as wonderful as, you know, the modern tools are, the world will not allow us to get away with just tools. we will need to confront these situations, and i think the moment is here where it is overdue, it is extremely urgent to try to find a way that will end the killing in syria not only because it has canings for israel and other countries in indonesia, but because it sits, of
that the iranian leadership in order to deflect attention what is happening in syria and deflect attention on the pressure on iran, the ideal situation is push for their own support inside gaza to begin it. once they launch a few rockets, israelis would have to respond. hamas would have to respond and then when that happens, most likely iranian supported elements started this. >> obama administration backs israel. is president obama standing with israel as in your judgment as he should? >> yes. so far he did. in the sense that he has no other option. no american president can come and say i'm with hamas against israel. he is with israel against hamas. at the same time this is the worst time for explosion to occur in the middle east. we know our situation in. we have an economic situation. ee needs unity in congress that is support of israel. we have the benghazi hearing. we may have to look at our national security doctrine. we have an arab spring that is being taken over by islamists. so putting that pressure that the u.s. can only do this and not more. >> gregg: hamas runs the authority
on in syria, for example, i am reminded in a worry some way of what happened 16, 17 years ago, almost two decades ago. are we capable of learning from those types of experiences? are we capable of allowing a situation to deteriorate further and further into more and more hatred and the inability of this country to come together again? i am worried that we are not capable -- we seem to be not capable of this moment to use the kind of diplomacy that i think would be highly desirable, to find a way to work with russia to work out a deal to go forward. i just want to make that point that paula also made. as wonderful as all the modern tools are, the world will not allow us to get away with tools. we will need to confront the situation, and i think the moment is here. it is overdue. it is extremely urgent to find a way to end the killing in syria. it sets a terrible example to other bad guys in the region and elsewhere if we do not act. >> we are going to have to wrap it up pretty soon, but we will take two more comments. >> thank you. in the australian high commissioner in ottawa. i am standi
in syria. if you see a big argument about whether or not the united states needs to be centrally involved in issues in which its interests may not be completely vital and that's a big change for the world. that may be the new normal. >> every list i forgot something. halifax is nothing if not cutting-edge. you are all encouraged to tweet or have your aides tweaked whatever insights you may find. the hash tag is halifax 2012 and we are going to have a force multiplier and social media realm about the brilliant insights that are here. you'll be the first one has actually treated. >> seen from europe the new normal that i can see doesn't look so dramatically different from the old normal. it has become popular in europe to speak of the decline of america to name just one example. spiegel had a cover story about the six superpower. in terms of the matter is, i don't think there's going to be a decline. the united states would be the one superpower for a long time to come. yet there've issue we get excited about and some people on the side of the atlantic is the future of europe and the e.u. a
are actively promoting trouble in syria and lebanon and gaza strip. >> general, all the money that we've invested in egypt as they go to the table, are they representing the american voice there appropriately? >> no. i think there's a great problem right now. mersi is trying to sort out where does he come down on all this? one could argue that mubarek and the military dictatorship were the only ones in egypt who supported continued peace with the israelis. they didn't want the egyptian army in the sinai, didn't want a ground war with israel. this has been good for both countries. but mersi and the brotherhood when they came into office had no such commitment. if he looks at his own electorate, there's widespread feeling among the egyptians that doesn't support the treaty. this is bad news. somehow our diplomacy, secretary clinton and the president, this is i think one of their primary purposes. how do we substitute diplomacy for war? >> general, sit tight. we'll have you come back with your thoughts on the petraeus scandal in just a moment. first back to washington with new comments f
